Frankfort wins 103-102 thriller at Woodford Co.

By SUSAN RIDDELL State Journal Sports Writer Published:

VERSAILLES - Offensively speaking, it doesn't get any better than Frankfort High's 103-102 win Friday night at Woodford County.

"I've never played in the game like this," said FHS freshman Aaron Dunaway, one of many heroes for Frankfort. "At least not with this many points."

"It was a fun game."

Fun, except for maybe the Woodford contingent and Frankfort coach Scott Chalk, who watched his team overcome a 46-point night by Woodford star Jerome Givens.

"I wish I had paid $4 for a ticket tonight so maybe I could have enjoyed this," Chalk said. "When you give up 102 points, you can't be happy. I'm just glad we got 103."

The Panthers trailed most of the game and were down 74-70 heading in to the final period. A three-pointer by Aaron Dunaway and two Chris Current free throws gave FHS the lead.

But the two teams went toe-to-toe offensively after that, exchanging the lead five times. Now with the score 88-84 Woodford and five minutes left in the game, it really got interesting.
